The Isle of Man was the birthplace of the ‘foreign holiday’ as far as many people from the North of England and Southern Scotland were concerned. To get to the idyllic shores of Mann a holidaymaker had to catch a ferry, and probably take a long train journey too, but once there paradise (or something close to it) awaited. At least that’s what the Island’s Tourist Board would have had you believe, and they went to great efforts to convince – as these films show. Join Terry Cringle to be guided through the wonderful and nostalgic tourism archive. Films spanning from the 1920s to the 1970s make for truly fascinating and occasionally hilarious viewing.
